Ear Plug & Gauges 101 – Hollywood Body Jewelry

A plug, also known as ear plug, earspool, or ear gauges, is a short, cylindrical piece of jewelry commonly worn in larger-gauge body piercings. Our quality plugs are made of assorted quality materials.  Sometimes they come in acrylic, stainless steel, wood, bone, stone, horn, glass, and even silicone. In order for a plug to stay inserted within a piercing the end of the plugs are either fastened in place by O-rings or they are flared outwards.


  • A double-flared plug, also known as saddle plugs, is thinner towards the middle and flares outward at both ends. No O-rings are necessary. They are usually harder to insert and usually feel a size bigger.
  • A single-flared plug has one flared end. The other end is normally held in place by an O-ring and may sometimes be grooved. Fortunately, unlike the double-flared plugs, they are easier to insert and will not stretch your ears any further.
  • A straight plug has no flared ends. The plug is kept in place by sliding an O-ring against both ends of the plug to prevent the accessory from falling out.
